5 Essentials for Sultry Summer Hair

in Do's and Dont's/Hair Care by

Summer is here and it’s time to prepare your locks for the heat, humidity and sun!  We have complied 5 ways to protect your hair from the damaging effects of summer without compromising your style.

1. INDULGE MORE: Tame unruly locks by adding moisture! Give your hair the royal treatment and repair luster with powerful antioxidants + botanical extracts with a Deep Conditioning Treatment. This will help balance and rehydrate tired, dry hair.

RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: Under the Sun, Let’s Get Deep – Conditioning Treatment

WHAT IT DOES: Infuse your hair with powerful botanical extracts and antioxidants. Formulated to revitalize and repair your hair’s luster while helping it withstand the effects of nature’s harshest elements: sun, salt, heat, and humidity.

AVAILABLE: alwaysunderthesun.com and Bond Street Salon, Delray Beach FL

2. FIGHT FRIZZ: Heat and sun oxidize hair color, making it look dry and dull. To seal in shine and rejuvenate hair, Lauren Donald, co-owner of Bond Street Salon, recommends a keratin smoothing treatment. “Keratin and additional conditioning agents help nourish and strengthen the hair, while restoring smoothness and shine.”

RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: Keratin Complex, Natural Keratin Smoothing Treatment

WHAT IT DOES: This service does not break the bonds, it infuses keratin into the cuticle eliminating up to 95 percent of frizz and curl leaving the hair softer, smoother and shinier. Keratin Complex is a revitalizing, rejuvenating treatment that will replenish lost keratin making the hair more manageable and easier to blow dry.

AVAILABLE: Bond Street Salon, Delray Beach FL, by consultation

3. REDUCE HEAT: When spending time in the sun, nourish hair with UV + thermal protectant or cover scalp with a hat. Also, limit heat styling by wearing loose braids, heatless curls or chic updos, this will give your hair some much needed R&R.

RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: Oribe, Gold Lust – Nourishing Hair Oil

WHAT IT DOES: This luxuriously light oil absorbs instantly to restore hair to its prime. Nourishes and strengthens. Smooths and adds shine. UV and thermal protection.

AVAILABLE: Bond Street Salon, Delray Beach FL

4. WASH LESS: Embrace natural texture! Frequently washing hair strips the scalp of natural oils, stimulating additional oil production. The solution to this is to wash your hair less; limit shampooing to 2 – 3 times a week. On break days, rinse hair with cold water as it closes the cuticle and locks in moisture. Use a dry shampoo for added freshness + texture.

RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: Oribe, Gold Lust – Dry Shampoo

WHAT IT DOES: Extend blowouts and prevent damage with Oribe’s transformative dry shampoo. Absorbs product buildup, oil and impurities with translucent powders while soothing scalp and restoring strength + softness. Fragrance-retention technology allows signature scent to stay all day.

AVAILABLE: Bond Street Salon, Delray Beach FL

5. MORE WATER: Even mild dehydration can zap energy from the hair roots and result in hair loss. By drinking enough water (2 – 3 liters daily) can help fight dandruff and hair thinning problems. Water also promotes hair growth and helps fight other hair and scalp challenges.

RECOMMENDED PRODUCT: H20

WHAT IT DOES: Drinking water helps maintain the balance of body fluids. Your body is composed of about 60% water. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.

Being Florida Fabulous: Protecting Your Hair from Swimming, Sun and Surf For Your Best Summer Hair Ever!

in Complimentary Treatments/Do's and Dont's/Florida Living/Hair Care by

Memorial Day weekend is the traditional kickoff to summer.  At Bond Street that means pinning cats’ eye sunglasses and retro styled swimsuits over on Pinterest, perfecting our mango margarita recipe, and enjoying all the things that make a Florida summer so wonderful –  the swimming, the surf and the sun.

It also means talking with our clients about how to protect their hair while still enjoying all the best aspects of Florida living. Sun, salt water and pool chemicals can take a harsh toll on your hair, leaving it brittle, faded and dry. At Bond Street Salon, we pride ourselves on being a treatment based salon that focuses on healthy hair first and foremost. Unlike other salons, our treatments and techniques were created with the Florida environment in mind.

So how do you enjoy the sun, the beach and the pool and still have gorgeous hair come Labor Day? It’s easier than you think.

Normally a hat goes against everything we stand for – love your hair, don’t cover your hair! But when it comes to spending your days outside in the baking Florida sun, loving your hair means covering your hair. Invest in a cute hat that complements your favorite swimsuit and make sure you keep it in your beach or pool bag. We’ll be pinning some to our Fashion board on Pinterest so check it out. http://pinterest.com/bondstreetsalon/

When it comes to swimming, you have two choices: keep your lovely head above water (and your hat on) or be careful and consistent about protecting your hair every time you swim. Soak it with cool clean tap water and slather on a leave in conditioner before you dive in, and be sure to rinse and condition again after your swim.

Most of all, come in for your complimentary treatment each week! It’s nourishing, it’s luxurious, and it can make an astonishing difference in the health and beauty of your hair.

As always, use good quality products, lay off the heat styling (or skip it altogether!) and have your hair trimmed regularly.

Enjoy the South Florida summer, Bond Streeters! What a wonderful place to live!
